The possibility of the heatwave in the metropolis has died out. The weather is likely to get better after the pre-monsoon.

No climatic change could be seen in the sea this month and the next month.

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) Director Abdul Rasheed, the pre-monsoon rains will occur from July 15- September 15.

However, the pre-monsoon impacts will become apparent in the month of July.

Monsoon rains to hit Pakistan by end of June

Clouds covered the city during the last week of Ramazan and eid holidays due to the pre-monsoon season.

PMD Director Rasheed added the heatwave that hit the city this year will not continue in the month of June and July and the weather is likely to get better gradually due to the monsoon effects.

Karachi is less likely to receive monsoon rains than the other parts of the country, he said.

However, the PMD had predicted the temperature to touch 38 degree on Tuesday but 35.5 C was the highest recorded temperature.

The PMD has predicted the temperature to remain moist and partially cloudy.
